Job description

Autism Experienced Teaching Assistants Required in Newport

  • Are you looking for long term work?
  • Do you have a keen interest in SEN more specifically Autism?
  • Are you looking for a competitive rate of pay and a fantastic CPD academy?

Then great! we are looking for you!

Teaching personnel work closely alongside an ASC centre to recruit an enthusiastic ASC experienced teaching assistant to join their school. Ideally you’ll have experience teaching ASC pupils with a great manner of building relationships with both students and staff.

The students attend the school due to a diagnosis of Autism and many have co-existing conditions including ADHD, sensory processing disorder, learning disabilities, disruptive behaviour disorders, mood disorders, anxiety, tics and Tourette syndrome, epilepsy and learning disabilities.

You must be confident and capable of supporting pupils who have problems with communication, toileting, eating or have sensory difficulties. You must be resilient and have the ability to work proactively with challenging behaviour.

The role is more challenging than mainstream schools, but the class sizes are smaller so you’ll really have a great opportunity to make an impact on the children.

You must have experience in supporting children / adults with Autism or have a close personal connection to Autism. Candidates with Team Teach or experience in PECS and / or Makaton are highly sought after.

The centre has been known to appoint candidates who get on particularly well on a long-term basis, which is a real incentive to show off your skill sets!

If interested please contact Bethan Kelland our specialist SEN consultant on 02920 660270 or send a copy of your CV to bethan.kelland@teachingpersonnel.com

All candidates applying to posts through Teaching Personnel must have a Child Workforce DBS, registered with the update service, or be willing to apply for one via the Disclosure Barring Service - Full assistance provided.
